Snowy Wonder

His Thoughts

 His Thoughts I wrote this poem June 14, 2016.  My devotional that day assigned me to write briefly about how God may think of me.  This is what flowed out of that time sitting in my back garden in the cool of the day. When my chin is down, my face forlorn, You never stare…

Where My Heart is Bleeding

It has been awhile since I posted a poem.  This one was given to me a few months ago and I wanted to share this with you.  A friend, Joel McCubbin, also helped me to revise and get the “flow” of this song down pat! Praying as you read this you will relate and find…
